Rumor started up that McCompStat was still showing up at work, locking the door to his office, and burning incense along with sensitive files showing the true crime numbers. The Sun Times attempts to dispel these stories:
- Mayor Rahm Emanuel sent his $260,044-a-year Police Supt. Garry McCarthy packing with just one month’s salary — roughly $21,670.
“Garry McCarthy was relieved of his duties on December 1, 2015, and is being paid until the end of this month through vacation days he earned, as required by state law,” Kelley Quinn, Emanuel’s communications director, wrote in an email in response to a Freedom of Information request from the Chicago Sun-Times.
“He will have two remaining vacation days at the end of 2015 and has no severance package.”
The Sun Times further outlines just how bad Garry got punked:
- The $21,670 in exit pay given to McCarthy pales by comparison to the $291,662 golden parachute offered to former Chicago Schools CEO Jean-Claude Brizard.
So word is he's waiting for a high-profile security job, wither with the NFL or the NHL.
